Windows 7: Missing MSAFD Netbios entries

Missing MSAFD Netbios entries

I have run Malware Bytes, Superantispyware, TDSSkiller and have found no infections and this machine had Norton 360 on it but it seems non-functional now (no system tray icon).

I get an IP from the router, I can ping the router and other external IP's ( but can not browse to either the IP's or a URL. I followed a MS winsock2 corruption KB (811259) advise and found that 6 entries are not in Msinfo32-components-network-protocol. Those being the MSAFD NetBIOS entries.

I ran Hijack This and it called out missing files under O23: BUT I ran it on a brand new (good) win7 machine and it listed missing files under the same O23: entry. And all the entries listed are in the appropriate folders...go figure.

I'm at a loss where to go after doing the netsh winsock reset
I have run the Norton Removal tool so that is out of the picture.
IE shows "waiting for response" but nothing comes.
Chrome likewise cannot browse.

I have been forging ahead and now I don't seem to be able to get an IP from the wired connection anymore but the wireless is working just fine. I only have one wireless router, go figure. Gonna try removing the NIC from device manager and re-installing.

Hi, I'm quite consternated and I'd love to hear your opinions on this. The story: I'm experiencing strange restarts but not random, I can routinely replicate it. After a boot IF I leave the logon screen alone (i.e. without logging in), the system restarts itself almost like automatically...
